Proposals sought for a proposed collection of essays entitled
"Buddhism: 'Eastern' Religion, World Literature" on interactions among
Buddhist faiths, writings, practices and "Western" literature. Most
interested in proposed histories of Buddhism and literature within a
single period (20-c British, for example); investigations of the
influence of a particular Buddhist school or Buddhist text over time or
over several texts, investigations of groups of similar texts by
different authors, or investigations of Buddhism within the work of
single significant figures, like Thoreau or Kerouac. Less interested in
investigations of a single text unless it is an undeniably important

Material Religion: The Journal of Images, Objects, and Belief
A new journal from Berg Publishers, Oxford

Material Religion seeks to explore how religion happens in material
culture – images, devotional and liturgical objects, architecture and
sacred space, works of art and mass-produced artifacts. No less
important than these material forms are the many different practices
that put them to work. Ritual, communication, ceremony, instruction,
meditation, propaganda, pilgrimage, display, magic, liturgy and
interpretation constitute many of the practices whereby religious
material culture constructs the worlds of belief.

Recent events have led to reappraisals of religion and spirituality.
This creates an opportunity to collect in one volume the different and
differing perspectives and interpretations of what it means to be
religious or spiritual today. Essays intended for an international
audience are therefore solicited for inclusion in a collection
tentatively entitled "Uniqueness and Versatility: Cross-Cultural
Expressions of Spirituality". The book is to bring together innovative
but readable explorations of religious, mythological, cosmological and
theological texts.

CFP: Role of Narrative in Religious Traditions (10/1/04; journal issue)

updated: 
Sunday, September 21, 2003 - 7:46pm
James Kee

INTERFACES, a bilingual French/English journal, invites essays for a
series of issues focusing upon the representational role of narrative in
religious traditions, whether in word or image. The issues will be
concerned especially with narrative's irreducible functions and with the
need within traditions for certain basic narratives to be re-told. Essays
may focus upon narratives from any major religious tradition; those that
foster dialogue between traditions-for example, by taking up tales common
to more than one-are especially welcome. The journal's plural title
announces its particular commitment to scholarship that explores
interdisciplinary interfaces.

Toni Morrison and the Bible:

Proposals are requested for a contracted collection of essays on Toni
Morrison and the Bible. Papers may deal with any of Morrison's texts
and approach her use of the Bible from the standpoints of Judaism or
Christianity as well as from other religions/practices that may
intersect with or challenge what might be considered the dominant
theological discourse. I am particularly looking for a broad range in
topics, both in the approach taken and inthe texts the essays treat.
Ideally, I would like the collection to include some solidly theoretical
essays as well as some more traditional pieces of literary criticism.
